  1. Use an alternative oil source: plant-based

    In 2002, a randomised, replicated study in Norway (Ng et al., 2004) found there were similar growth rates and feeding efficiency in salmon, Salmo salar, fed one of two experimental diets containing different blends of fish oil, palm oil and rapeseed oil. Both experimental diets contained 50 % fish oil with either 10 % or 25 % palm oil. Rapeseed oil made up the remainder of the oil in the diet. Over 12 weeks, 880 salmon were fed one of the experimental diets. Growth rates and feeding efficiency were measured.
